AMD FX 6300 Black Edition, Vishera, Six Core, AM3+, Clock 3.5GHz, Turbo 4.1GHz, 8MB L3 Cache, 95W, CPU, Retail is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 43.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Decent Budget CPU The FX6300 was a decent CPU at the time, and would still be decent for a low cost pc, suitable for general tasks and less intensive and/or older games.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's done the job really well. Been running this processor for a good few years now. Lightly overclocked to 4.2Mhz and runs just under 49c using a Noctua NH-U14s CPU fan. No other fans in my system at all as I like a quiet one for audio work. Can't beat this for the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from amazing product this is an amazing cpu for the price plenty of power and processing speed i have put 4 of these in to computers now and all work perfectly

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hot Hot price, hot CPU. Really pleased with this CPU paired with ASRock 970 Pro3 (PID LN62755) and using Corsair XMS3 x2 8GB sticks (PID LN33670) using I'm running the likes of Batman Arkham Knight and GTA V on full details without any issues at all. If you're building on a budget this is the best AMD bang for your buck. The only thing I would say is that this CPU gets hot when under load. Idle its perfectly fine, normal. The heat is not all that bad, I have variable fan speeds on my rig case which resolved this but something to consider if you don't have a lot of airflow. I'm looking to update the stock fan that came with the CPU for the summer though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A superb bargain 6-core CPU This is an excellent choice for any desktop PC - while the FX series are getting a bit older this did nicely for a recent build. I have nothing bad to say about this apart from I would highly reccomend getting a different cooler, or at least replacing the stock fan as it is very noisy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from AMD always gets a hammering.... I research a lot before purchase, the general theme is if it ain't AMD then bin it. I've used the X4 Athlon 635, Phenom BE 965, FX8350 with 10-20% stable overlock and I've never really been so hassled by performance to date. I find it all comes down to your expectations, your budget and what you will be doing. Combined with a good GPU (heck I just upgraded my 5 year old 965BE with a GTX750ti - plays fine on most games!) this will be fine for most things gaming and general office and soft (as in not intensive!) video editing. I wouldn't entertain or consider comparing it to intel, you'll want this if you have a budget and know what your activities require; this can do it. Aside from this CPU I'd say the FX8350 performs very, very well in the FX range, the rest seem to just be alternatives if they take your fancy!

Questions & Answers

I want a mobo with ob/ graphics to house this CPU. What is the best mobo and o/b graphics chip to go for?

Asked by: Japes
This CPU does not have an on board graphics chip. You will need to pair it with a dedicated graphics card, or I would reccomend one of the AMD A-series processors, From the Spec Sheet: Graphics Chipset: N/A Graphics Cores: N/A Graphics Clock: N/A
